    Whom in your opinion, are the Dinobots rivals?

    Since day one, they've been the Constructicons.

    But back in the day (the 80's) when the Predacons were introduced to us via toy commercial they were advertised as the Dinobots equal.

    Who do you think?

    I've always favored the Predacons personally.

    Gotta go with the Pred's, since I'm a comic guy first. I like the old Divebomb Vs Swoop name feud from the Uk comics.

    Chose Predacons, since they had some scuffles with the Dinobots in the comics. However, I don't think the Dinobots really had a clear rival in the Decepticons in G1.

    I always thought the CC's were their rivals if ever there were any.

    I always thought Sky Lynx seemed to be the Predacons rival. And the Constructicons were friends turned rivals of Omega Supreme. So I voted for neither.

    The Predacons always made more sense being the Dinobots' counterparts. But in the fandom, the Constructicons have always been the favorite. Which is in itself kind of fitting, since the Constructicons could be a foil since they can be pretty brainy when they want to be (individually, anyways).

    The Dinobots' rival is ... anyone or anything that gives the Autobots more trouble than usual. :)

    I recall the Dinobots getting their collective asses handed to them by Devestator in the movie, so theres that. However, alt mode-wise the Predacons make greater sense as being the team to beat up on the Dinoboys. Kind of a toss up for me here.

    Pikachu, I choose you!!

    I saw the title of the thread and immediately thought "Well, it's either each other, or every non-Dinobot transformer." :lol

    Third Option...

    If I HAD to pick it would be the Predacons but my personal choice would be the TERRORCONS who I think could take out both the Dinobots and Predaking but Abominus never got enough cartoon time,(and yes I know he had a transforming timer and Computron was his nemesis).

    Preds, But who seriously takes another bot's name?.... that's just confusing.

    Has every Transformer that has used the name "Divebomb" somehow bested and humiliated its former namesake?

    Another vote for Shockwave. As said, the Predacons and Constructicons were set up with Sky Lynx and Omega Supreme respectively as rivals, and the Dinobots have had several memorable fights with Shockwave in the comics, from their debut in the Marvel comic right up to the recent IDW issue.
